The chief executive of a Birmingham dogs charity has left his position after his arrest on suspicion of stealing funds.
West Midlands Police, which is still investigating the allegations, arrested Price in November last year and released him on bail.
Price answered bail on 9 March, but was not re-bailed, a statement from West Midlands Police said.
At the time of Price’s arrest, the charity said that the missing funds were uncovered when trustees noticed financial irregularities in the charity’s accounts and investigated.
According to the Charity Commission website, Birmingham Dogs Home had income of £3.3m and spent £1.7m in the year to 31 December 2015.
In a statement, John Wheatley, chairman of Birmingham Dogs Home, said today: "I can confirm that our former chief executive was asked to leave Birmingham Dogs Home and that matters related to bail are down to police procedure.
"As criminal investigations are still under way it would not be prudent to comment further at this time."
A spokeswoman for the Charity Commission said: "The Charity Commission is aware that an individual linked to Birmingham Dogs Home was arrested on suspicion of theft in November 2016. The commission is in contact with the charity’s trustees to obtain further information on the incident and to seek assurances regarding the charity’s financial controls and procedures."
Third Sector was unable contact Price for comment.
